Good morning!! We are finally having decent weather, and it is appreciated by all who live here. I was sleepy this morning, and didn't get up to go to the pool. This weekend, though, we will go to a lake and swim and fish. I'm not a fan of fishing, so my husband will fish while I swim. Yesterday I ran two miles with a walk break each half mile. I did that last Wednesday, and also on Saturday, and didn't experience any problems. But yesterday after my run my broken foot started feeling achy. I pushed on the broken part and didn't feel any localized pain, so I'm hoping it's just tendons that really haven't been used in a while. My toes are still feeling weird today. I'm a little bit worried about it. It's been 11 weeks since I broke my foot. I have an appointment on Thursday for an x-ray, so we'll see how it's doing. I'm not a fan of this feeling, though.

Hi everyone,
well I am home now from my one week stay looking after my daughters dogs and home.
My three dogs that remained at home were so happy to see me as well as our cats and the little dog I took with me was happy to see his fur brothers and sisters after coming home.

My hubby barbecued a couple of small steaks and I cooked some corn on the cob for dinner and we had a lovely garden salad, After dinner I began by taking each dog out for a 30 minute walk each. After the first two had come back I decided to take the 2 boys together as time was getting on and I wanted to get home and relax.
I had already walked my daughters 2 dogs and my little one this morning for 40 minutes so I got over 2 hours of walking in and we went at a good pace.

I will be going to my mom's tomorrow as she had an eye appointment. After her appointment I will take her little dog out for a walk and him and I usually get about 8 kilometres in. The breeze this evening made walking very pleasant. Without the breeze it would have been way too hot.

I hope everyone has been having a great day. As the old cliché goes "there's no place like home" I am happy to be back but oh how I miss the pool already. I think I will check out some beaches for safe swimming around here if the heat insists on staying.

Have a great evening everyone.

Beach walk sounds wonderful! I can't wait until October to go to the Cayman Islands for my son's wedding. Will be my first ever trip to an ocean/beach, and that was #1 on my bucket list! My foot is still bothersome and not getting any better, so I think I'm going to have to see the podiatrist.

Good morning. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!! Massive rain last night, but that is all in keeping with the theme of this summer!

My broken foot seems to be healing well. I go back to the doctor next Thursday. I also go for a follow-up for my eye on Thursday. My eye has been bothering me, like there is something in it. I went last week for a follow-up, and the doctor couldn't find anything wrong except for inflammation of unknown cause. He wants to see me again next week just to make sure. I had the worst little 1st year resident eye doctor, and I know she was very frustrated with me. I am not good about hiding my frustrations when I think the doctor is a goof. And I thought she was a goof. Worst eye exam ever!! The head doctor came in after the resident examined me. He was much better. He was the one who saw inflammation. I'm pretty sure that little girl doctor was rethinking her decision to become an ophthalmologist after she examined my eyes. Haha. Poor thing. I'll try to be nicer next week.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Susan, I envy you the pool availability. I haven't swam (swum? swimmed?) for many years, but used to love it. I always felt both invigorated and relaxed after swimming, if that's possible! Very, very windy today, so may use the treadmill tonight instead of walking outside. .

Good Morning all

have not slept well at al last night. Not enough of solid sleep all week so going back home tomorrow I should have a better sleep in my own bed.

Today I will make the most of today, enjoying the pool and al the amenities there are here. Mostly I will miss having the pool at my disposal and given great thought this week about acquiring one for hubby and I. I'm sure he won't agree however because he doesn't swim very well or really appreciate the water the way I do.

Well I better get some breakfast and take the dogs out walking before it gets too hot. The heatwave is to continue here for several more days. At least it slows the grass down from needing to be cut every other day like in June when we had more rain.

Sending healthy thoughts out toall for a fabulous day.

Good morning. It's been several days since I've checked in. I need to go back and read. Today I chose to skip my pre-work workout, but I packed my gym bag and will hit the gym after work. Then I'll stop by and see my dad. I had an actual conversation with him yesterday. It lasted about 10 sentences, but it was an actual conversation. It's the first one in two weeks. He's been too weak to talk for a while now. It was good to talk to him last night.

Very nice, Susan. I used to dabble in PSP, but had the program 2 computers ago, so it's been a while. Couldn't do what you do, though! Had a stressful day at work, but worked off my frustrations with walking and pickleball. Got in over 15,000 steps. I am tired out though. Didn't sleep that well last night, as we had a very NOISY storm with lots of rumbling and lightning. Ready to put my feet up and relax with my Kindle.

Hello Ladies, wishing you all a fabulous day.
The images that I post here I make myself in Paint Shop pro. I had my own website for years where people could take memberships out to download the graphics I make. The ones I post here are very simple ones compared to what I can actually make intricately.

Thank you for asking Marilyn.

Morning Guys,
John has his tests tomorrow so we're all anxious for the results. He's a bag of bones!
Lovely weather today, beach walk then back to working on the loft.

Wow, I was gone for a few days and missed so much in the posts. My sympathies, Joy. All of you active ladies continue to leave me feeling like a slacker! But I continue to plod along -- lose a few pounds, then gain them back, so not making much progress but not giving up, either! Still frustrated with my foot tendonitis or whatever it is -- but I guess if that's the worst I have to complain about I should (and am!) counting my lucky stars.

Hi Everybody!
Sending prayers for John. it is terrible to hear that Joy's SIL passed so quickly.
Joy, I am sending my prayers and deepest sympathy to you and your family over her loss. I am so glad your GS will be able to drive you to the services.

Caz, Sorry the Cliff Top festival was a wash. It sounded like fun.

I have had to rewrite this post several times as I read the updates above the earlier posts.

Susan, you are one active gal! I need to follow your lead.
I would love to know where you get or make the cute little motivational posters you have been adding to your posts lately.

Hi to all. Hope everyone had time for some fun over the weekend.

We went to a Cleveland Indians game yesterday. The weather was gorgeous and it was fun in spite of the game being rather boring.

Today I am getting my brakes fixed on the car. It is warm here, so I exercised inside today.
Summer is here!
Have a great day!

Good morning Ladies, Happy Monday,

it is sunny and very hot here today. I took the dogs for their walk at 9:00 am and they were all happy to get home after the 35 minutes. It's too hot for them for walking so will have to get curtail the walks until it cools down some.

Sending best wishes for a great day.

Have a great week everyone, the festival was a washout yesterday, the heavens opened around noon and did not let up. We heard the fireworks being let off from our bungalow but it was raining so watched from the window- still raining as we went to bed.
Guess the garden is well watered LOL

Can't get away from the phone and computer; ALL my kids and grandkids are going to the funeral. That's a lot of travel and motel space to coordinate. We've lost a very special lady and want to be their for her husband and daughter. They were THE Aunt and Uncle to my kids. I will be offline the 29th-1st. My computer will be in for repairs. I'll miss you all!

Went to a small VW car show this morning. Those are always fun to mill around.
Picked up a cake mix for 50 cents (rarely use these as I am a scratch baker/cook). Decided to make it today. Took it out of the oven to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, went back to the kitchen and the cakes had fallen! Can't believe it. Hopefully the taste didn't fall also.
Hope everyone is well and enjoying the day.

Today is another wonderful hot and sunny day. Same thing as yesterday with walking the dogs this morning, swimming for half an hour and on the elliptical. Will repeat it all later in this day for but hope to get a run in as well if it cools down.There is a nice breeze blowing right now.

Hope everyone is having a great day and making it a healthy one.

Morning all
Joy I am so sorry to hear this. She is at peace now and no longer suffering. My thoughts are with you and your family, safe journey to see your loved ones emoticon
Lynette thank you hun
Suz John is not my hubby hun, he's our best life long friend. My hubby is Pete, I should have made it clearer.....so hard to keep track of everyone's loved ones here on SP. thank you for your kind words.


It is the Cliff Top Festival this weekend but it looks like it will be a wash out, it's tipping it down.
Hope it clears later tonight John's wife Vicki was hoping to leave him for a short while and walk the length of the festival for a break. And Sunday night there will be a firework display, would be good to go and watch that. Hope it stays fine. Doubtful though emoticon
Working out with kettle bells this morning- need to get those muscles moving

Have a good weekend all, whatever planned, and Joy...........sending some much needed hugs hun emoticon

Thank you for the comforting words. My SIL passed on at 3 this afternoon. It''s been a day of shock and phone calls. Yes, expected but not that quickly. She is at peace and no longer in pain but my brother and niece who have been so strong are understandably having a rough time. Not sure how much I will be here this next week. Will check in when I can. I will be going North but don't know when.

Hello Ladies,

it's been an awesome day for weather and fitness here today. Walked the 3 dogs twice today went swimming three times. on the elliptical twice, yoga in the morning and did a 3 k run tonight. I'm pooped right now. I had a chance to get a bit of color laying in the sun for 20 minutes.

Caz, I will keep your hubby in my prayers that all is well after his colonoscopy. Hope they find everything to be all right with him.

Joy I am so sorry about your SIL. It has to be heart wrenching for the family to go through this ordeal. This happened to our family over a year and half ago when my mom's sister decided to not undergo treatment for her lung cancer. She only lasted 3 weeks.

It is so sad that in life must go through the pain of losing our loved ones. It is never easy but knowing that God's love is here and He will take care of our loved ones is somewhat of a comfort.

Well, I am going to knit for the rest of the evening so I will say good night. Have a great day tomorrow.

Good Morning All,
Rough night last night. Dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety; mostly being so far from hurting family. Lots of unknowns right now and I am not a traveler; hate driving and hate being dependent on others. Thought I was prepared for this but my mind and my body are out of sync. All I know to do is keep on keepin' on until I have more information. My dear SIL has had a recurrence of cancer and it's everywhere. Long story short, it's incurable and she'd decided to let it run it's course. Has days or weeks, they don't know and right now everyone is hurting even though we understand and respect her decision. This is all happening so fast there are a lot of unknowns. Another one day at a time, decisions to make and none of them good.
Glad GGS will be here today. My grandson is stopping by too; he's volunteered to drive me to MI but right now we don't have enough information to make a plan. It's a beautiful day in KY and I need to get into it. Have a great weekend everyone.

Joy , in KY, USA

Good morning guys
Jeri you sound so excited about the Eagles gig...........hope you post pics of your outfit.
Joy you are so right.
Lynette I hope you find some comfortable footwear soon.
Suz just saw your feed about bikinis Go girl!
Cat thanks hun.

We're in for much needed rain today, in fact, just looked out the window and it's started. UGh. was hoping to get a walk in. No matter. When I come back from the weekly shop I'll get on my bike.
John is still not good and going for an colonoscopy next Wednesday. Prayers and positive thoughts please.

Hi everyone,

I am now out of town in Brantford Ontario taking care of my daughters home and her 2 dogs. I brought one of my little dogs up with me for the week. I have already taken advantage of the pool getting a 15 minute swim in then came inside and did 15 minutes on the elliptical. After dinner it is a nice walk with the 3 dogs and then back home and a run for me while doggies rest. I am going to have the best week ever for fitness!
Sending out best wishes to all for a great evening and fabulous day tomorrow.

Susan from

I WILL reach my GOAL!

I too will look into RXCrocs. I know that I should wear footwear in the house, if only for protection, and vow I will do that once the toe is healthier. Anything on it makes it sore.
Yesterday ended up very dif than expected. We had a tornado watch, very unusual for here, but we "only" got golf ball sized hail. It doesn't seem to have done any damage in the yard but I will try to get someone to get up on the roof to check that.
Off to do my volunteer shift and some errands soon but can't figure out what to put on my feet. We must have closed-toes shoes on, and that hurts. Wore my good runners last week and was set back considerably. With my 100 prs of shoes, I should be able to find an alternative, shouldn't I?

Good Morning All! I love coming to this thread every morning! It's all about living! JERI's right; it is a beautiful morning here. Only 59 when I got up and the humidity is gone for now. I'm looking forward to a morning in the yard, catching up on errands this afternoon and and early dinner and music in the park this evening. It's all good.

CAZ, at the very least the upcoming health meeting has you stressed. I'm sure you will go in with your ducks in a row; hopefully you'll get someone who will listen with respect. Stay strong! I hope the meeting is soon!

Judy, I didn't even know there were Rx Crocs! Might be worth looking into. I'm a stocking feet in the house gal. Tight calf muscles have always been an issue for me; yoga helps. But, since the sprain and being off my feet this spring they've tightened up again. Argh! Stretching, perhaps my least favorite thing to do.

Jeri, I felt like I was reading a rehash of my feet mending. The broken toe really slowed the whole process down. Finally feel like they're back 100% functionally. Still, sometimes a little sore. Thankfully my stamina is coming back. I was afraid with the heart issues it might not.

Enjoy this day everyone!

Good morning! It is a beautiful day in central Kentucky! I started the morning with a swim, and it was the slowest swim ever!!! Last night I got on the treadmill for a very slow walk/run sequence. The treadmill has no incline, and is a much softer surface than the road. It has been almost 10 weeks since the original break, and the only pain I have now is tightness in my hip and knee from walking weirdly in my hard shoe for so long!! My other foot, though, is annoying from the pain in my pinky toe. And that poor little toenail looks dreadful!

My daughter bought the cutest outfit for the Eagles concert!! Now I'm going to have to shop again. I settled for an outfit that my husband liked, and it's an okay outfit. But it is not what I wanted. I am going to have to go for something else.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Man O Man what a restless night!
Had a dream I argued with my yet to be met consultant over my treatment plan. He was insistent something I'd already tried would work when I KNEW DARNED well it wouldn't. I stormed out of his office and woke up in a terrible temper emoticon
Hope this is not an ominous sign emoticon

One of the presenters at my Women's Connection program/meeting last night was a podiatrist, and I got some good information and tips from him. Will try some of them for a while to see if my foot pain clears up, and if not I will make an appointment to see him. The hardest for me will be to wear shoes while in the house. First thing I always do when I walk in the door is kick off my shoes. Going barefoot is very bad for the feet, apparently. He recommends Crocs RX for wearing around the house. Crocs are so ugly, but I might have to get some! Also learned that tight calf muscles can cause many types of foot problems, so they need to be properly stretched.

hi everybody. I am up and at it this morning, determined to get a few things done from my list as it seems to grow exponentially by the day! We have had mixed weather and the forecaster promises our morning will be nice so I'll be making hay while the sun shines. And then this aft, I have my new stack of books that I picked up at the library last night. emoticon
Summer reading is also one of my priorities!

Hi Everybody!
Joy, loved the tomato pic. Yum! We are getting some on our plant on the front porch. Tasty,
but only the size of a golf ball. Next year we will go bigger.
Susan, sorry you are having toe pain. Glad you could take those shoes back.
Cat, the berries sound wonderful.
Caz, I am sending more prayers for poor John.
Jeri, I think you would look great in hip huggers.
Hi Patti, Have a great work week.

Had lunch with good friends yesterday. We talked about various issues of the older stages of aging. We were talking about who we could get help from when we need it, especially those of us who are childless or who have family far away. I found some good info. on the web. One idea was to engage the services of a geriatric care manager who can help with dr. appts., arrange for an evaluation for dementia, etc. That gave me much comfort to realize I have some options. Even if you have family members close by, sometimes they try to do things like steal your money.
Beautiful day here. But we will have cold weather eventually. I am making arrangements for us to take a jazz cruise in Jan. It will be fun, but I promised myself I must use the fitness room while onboard. So I am getting geared up for wearing a swimsuit in Jan. My Fitbit is helping me focus on it.
Judy, I am excited that we are going to get a pickle ball court at our campground. Thanks for being a good example of having fun and being active at the same time.
Have a blessed day!

Marilyn

great photos that you gals are sharing here. Wow, those tomatoes are amazing. I don't attempt to garden anymore but do like the farmer's market.
Jeri, I exclaimed "Oh, no!" aloud when I read that you injured your other foot. Those baby toes sure seem to get in the way and cause lots of problems, in spite of their small size. Mine was feeling really good, just normal, and I forgot that it was injured and grabbed it to dry between the toes after my shower this morning. Big mistake! I'm hobbling again, sigh.

Another day I missed posting.!? Whatever.......must be sometimers.
Lovely grand kid pics Anne & Joy. Think the hoops a bit large for yours Anne...lol.
Started out walking this morning with SO and both dogs. Let the dogs off leash at the end of the street to run around in empty lot and beginning of woods (a trail we go on sometimes).
Both dogs took off up the trail and wouldn't come back. I had to go in about 100 yds to find my Sheltie.
But, we found a side trail we hadn't been on before and it wound around and came out to a small, rustic bench at the edge of the bluff. A beautiful view of the bay and opposite hillside.
Have a great day everyone.

Stopping in to say hi while on my lunch break. Tonight have a Women's Connection program to go to, starting out with a light salad supper. But that means no walking or pickleball, unless I have enough motivation to do it when I get home. Will see how that work out..... I can't wait for the tomatoes to be ready. Nothing like fresh from the garden. I don't have a garden, but many of my friends have extras that they share and if not, we'll go to the Farmer's Market and/or Hutterite Colony. Looking forward to my first BLT of the season, and an ear of sweet corn to go with it!

Good morning. Sitting here at work while my accounting program is stuck in the Twilight Zone of the Ever Spinning Circle. Ugghhh...

Love the baby pics on here! Joy, our tomatoes haven't grown that large yet. We had such a difficult time getting them in the ground due to all the rain. Our garden is still a big muddy mess, with lots of mosquitoes hiding under the plants. I heard on the news that it has rained 29/37 days. That was two days ago, and it's rained each day since. Maybe we'll get some dry weather this week. My front yard smells like worms.
